My Wish List of VeeDub Books

Volkswagen Vanagon Official Factory Repair Manual: 1980-1991

Including Diesel, Syncro, and Camper. US$99.95

Get this one from Bentley Publishers, but I'm not sure if its the right one. This manual says it covers up to 1991, but my van is 1992. I really don't think there is a difference, but I'm contacting them to make sure. Bloody expensive manual, so it would want to be right.

Volkswagen in Australia - The Forgotten Story. $79.95

Over 250,000 VWs were assembled in Australia until 1976 and this very impressive new work, subtitled The Forgotten Story, takes a nostalgic look at the history of the local company and these cars, revisiting the days when the sound of an air-cooled flat-four engine was commonplace on our roads. Extensively illustrated throughout with all manner of period advertising, press clippings, factory & dealership photos, this labour-of-love fully deserves your attention.

the Bentley manual is the only book of use to you if you have a '92. (my syncro is a '92)

There is NOTHING else of any substance.

ring Muller & Muller at Lakemba and see how much for a copy.
